THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This Apple Green over black upholstery flatbed is an example of what was no doubt a common sighting in period but relative unobtainium today. Tools of the trade, trucks like these often saw active service for decades until they were so worn out that continued use was neither safe nor prudent. Survivors are rarely seen.

Acquired by Lindley Bothwell, Jr. in the late 1980s/early 1990s from the collection of T. McHenry, the truck is outfitted with the heavy duty front wheels and dualie rear wheels for heavier loads. With power coming from the same motor that drove the smaller sedans and roadsters, a pace of leisure is to be expected when underway.

As with many vehicles from the Bothwell Collection, on screen time was seen in the 1996 film Entertaining Angles: The Dorothy Day Story, a 1995 Adidas commercial, and in the 1996 television show Living Single. The engine was also recorded for use by Disney in 1992.

With an open flatbed, the number of available uses are nearly endless. A stellar machine for personal or business use, one can all but be assured they are unlikely to encounter another similar example.
